Experience and References


  • One of your first questions will be naturally be based around why you should have confidence in me and my service. So then who am I ?
  • Since 1981, as a Romanian national guide, I have escorted groups and individual tourists from USA, England, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Greece, Turkey, Japan, China, Taiwan, Australia, Portugal, Mexico, Russia.
  • Also, as a tour manager, I have escorted groups of Romanian tourists that visited other countries, such as: England, Holland, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Ucraina, Republic of Moldova, Thailand, Japan.
  • I have done also coach guiding, extended touring, incentive groups and site inspections. And I have a degree as manager in tourism.
  • Therefore I feel it fair to assert that I have a special understanding of the sophisticated and informed visitor.
  • I speak and guide in Romanian, English and Japanese. In case you write me in Japanese, please use hiragana and katakana with space between words.
  • I aim to unveil Romania for you, to inform and entertain, whether is a coach tour for students, a site visit for tourists or an international conference of professors. I shall be at your disposal from the moment of arrival in Romania until the moment of departure.
  • Personal interests are history, geography, UNESCO - world heritage sites, palaces, country houses, good living, photography, theater, classical music and touring.
  • Everything I do is tailored to your needs. I hope my passengers leave me well-informed and with a big smile. Humor, knowledge and flexibility are the key words.
